Our Mission

Crete Creative is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and promoting the creative arts in Crete, IL and abroad. We have made it our mission to foster a welcoming exhibition and educational space within our gallery's historic walls.


It is our belief that culture and the arts should be accessible to everyone. Talent is not reserved for major cities, neither is a love, interest, or passion for the arts. With the help of our volunteers, we produce solo and group exhibits, teach classes for all ages and skill levels, while also providing reliable studio space to local artists.

We are currently located on the first floor of the beautiful, Victorian Arbor House, which can be visited at 1304 Main Street, Crete, IL.

For more information about our volunteer opportunities, current exhibits or if you are interested in being one of our exhibiting artists, please contact us.


We are now located at Arbor House, 1304 Main Street, Crete, IL.
